My last blog post was about a Comic Book TV adaptation (Arrow) and this one is no different. I’ve been binge-watching Netflix’ own Daredevil with my sister and if you care to read on you’ll see how it managed to enthrall or appall me. Well, there’d be no binge-watching if it wasn’t worth it so that line was a waste of time. Anyway…
I think it’s safe to say that I’m a sucker for superhero movies and comics. So it didn’t surprise me that I am totally digging the TV show Arrow. But unlike The Avengers or Iron Man or maybe others I haven’t seen yet, it is not just about super powers. Since it is a TV show and not a movie, the creators have much more time to tell a story with different arcs and develop the characters throughout. Going in I had no expectations whatsoever and now that I have finished Season 2, I am very pleasantly surprised about how much I have come to like it.Read More »
I haven’t done much drawing the last week as I was more busy reading the second book of The First Law. However, I still managed to produce some images.
The main goal was to see how the main three primitives, sphere, cube and cylinder are the base of basically every object one can imagine.
One of the reasons I bought an iPad was to read digital comics. Now, a year later I not only like reading them but appreciate the art of drawing so much that I started drawing myself. To be absolutely clear, other than art classes at school – which were of no interest to me and are long gone now – I have no experience whatsoever. So I started searching on the internet for resources on how to start. I found something on the iBook Store which in turn led me to a series of Youtube videos by Stan Lee and John Buscema on how to draw comics – The Marvel Way! These videos are so unbelievably old, they’re talking about pausing the tape in order to draw what was just discussed and shown! So I did as I was told and here are the results.
